Which alarm systems to choose from?

I am looking to replace a my security alarm systems at my warehouse and looking for the ones with the latest facilities like smart phone access to alarm systems. While googling I came to know about quite a few home security companies like ADT, Simplisafe, Think Protection, through a review website. I came across different reviews on these home security providers on different websites. Im not quite sure of which one to choose from. Any suggestion?

Request Quotation from the companies and compare

If you are familiar with installation of alarm system, you can buy brand one from online store such as ebay.
If you don't know how to program it or need security service monitor, you should buy from security service company such as ADT, Simplisafe etc.
Please call them and ask whether or not they have service at your area.
If they have service at your area zone, you can describe your security needs such as smart phone access etc. to them and request quotation with detailed alarm system recommended.
After that, you can compare and choose a right one.
Alarm system is technical device and there are many articles shared knowledge of choose tips, installation tips. You can google something and you can get much knowledge about it.

Depends what you are looking for

It depends what you looking for. Alarm systems have mainly three categories

1. Home Security
2. Home Surveillance
3. Perimeter Guard

Home Security involves a door intrusions, motion sensors, door locks etc Home Surveillance includes CCTV cameras and finally Perimeter Guard includes overall security to restrict encroachment to ones property.

You can check this KIT it has almost everything :

pick what you like and create it yourself

My suggestion is to create one yourself. You only need one multi-protocol Hub giving you an eco-system of smart devices. Pick sensors and cameras you want and that are compatible. Have your own system at a fraction of the cost.

Best of all, if you choose the Hub wisely you have a great platform to customize your smart home. Connect your Phillips Hue-s or Lifx, TV, mediaplayer, loud speaker and more and more.

I've owned a Wink before. This week I bought a new promising solution on Indiegogo from a Swedish tech company. Here is the link if you're interested:

Have fun with whichever choice Happy
